Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia, Spain your home away from home

Few people think of Spain as a skiing resort, but at over 10,000 feet above sea level, the mountains around Sierra Nevada Town are a great area for winter sports. However, during the dry summer months when the Spanish Costas are sizzling, a rental home in Sierra Nevada Town in the cool mountain air makes good sense too. With spectacular scenery yet within easy reach of the Moorish city of Granada, it is a different way to enjoy all that Andalucia has to offer.

Things to Do in Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia Winter Sports

During the winter months, the resorts in the Sierra Nevada Mountains get light, dry powder snow, due to the low humidity in the area. This is perfect for alpine skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and other winter sports on the 65km of ski slopes. From the top of the nearby Veleta Peak, skiers have wonderful views to the Mediterranean and the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Summer Activities

The Sierra Nevada Mountains and nearby National Parks are ideal for walking and hiking in the summer months. With dramatic scenery and fresh mountain air, this is also the quietest time to enjoy the small towns in the area. Horse riding in the lush green valleys, caving and mountain biking are popular activities around your beautiful holiday home in Sierra Nevada town.

Places to Visit Around Sierra Nevada Town, Andalucia Al Hambra, Granada

This ancient fortified residence with its massive walls and pretty gardens is a short drive from your accommodation in Sierra Nevada Town, through some incredible mountain scenery. Built by the Moors over 1000 years ago, this ancient palace stands high on a cliff face above the river gorge and has magnificent views. The architecture and churches of the city of Granada are also worth exploring.

Sierra de Castril Natural Park

This scenic natural park in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Spain is home to many exotic and rare bird species. A visit to this mountainous land will introduce visitors to the gall oaks and, at higher latitudes, larch pines. Tawny vultures, otters, mountain goats and other wildlife can all be enjoyed on a wildlife excursion.

Costa del Sol

Although you may be enjoying your quiet holiday rental in Sierra Nevada Town, the beaches of the Costa del Sol are just two hours drive away.

Jose- Maria was not on site but replied very promptly to my queries on line and via email when we were en route.To greet us was his nephew Alvaro who had cleaned the apartment thoroughly and was very helpful when we had difficulty getting a taxi for the bus station on the last day. It was well equipped and we found the walk to all the sites easy enough. There were plenty of shops and restaurants around the apartment and we tried the Rhodri restaurant nearby as recommended by Jose- Maria. This was a busy,jolly, authentic tapas place frequented I think largely by locals, good fun and interesting food. I have read in the review that the apartment was tired, decor wise but I thought it was good value for money and very comfortable especially in February, it was warm as promised. We found everyone in the city helpful and the owner and his nephew were good examples of this. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to my friends. Alison & Bill Cumbria

We were there in late Autumn, and had cosy open fires most nights, with the thanks to Gym we had a good supply of firewood and the surrounding hills provided a good supply of pine cones to help get the fire started.

A lovely little pool to cool off in, internet/WIFI access, movies, music, books etc. About a 15 minute walk to the town of Orgiva, which has small, but good supermarkets. I would recommend this place to anyone. There is also a health center and a couple of pharmacies in town if required. Just a very enjoyable stay all around and we'd definitely stay again. Tanya's directions to find the place were great.
